US Commanders To Issue "Rare Warning" To N.Korea As Kim Threatens "Merciless Revenge"

Tyler Durden's picture

As the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills begin near the Korean Peninsula, North Korea's Kim has threatened "merciless revenge" against the "US Imperialists and South Korean war maniacs" for ignoring his warnings. North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reports that:

The US imperialists and the South Korean war maniacs launched the Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills aimed at a preemptive attack on the DPRK.


Despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK, they have kicked off the war in the pretext of resolving "countering" the "provocation by the north." This is aimed at igniting a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula at any cost.


What is more serious is the fact that on the eve of the war exercises, American troops, including US Pacific Commander and Strategic Commander, flew to the South, contributing far more US troops from overseas, as well as seven vassal states including Australia and Britain.


The Korean peninsula has plunged into a critical phase due to the reckless north-targeted war racket of the war maniacs.

As Bloomberg notes, KCNA further cites an unidentified military spokesman as saying it would be a misjudgment for the U.S. to think that North Korea will “sit comfortably without doing anything” during the U.S.-South Korea joint military drills.

Ongoing drills and visits of U.S. military officials to South Korea create the circumstances for a "mock war" on the Korean peninsula, KCNA says.


U.S. can’t avoid "merciless revenge" by North Korea.


U.S. should never forget North Korea is watching its moves closely with "fingers on triggers, ready to pour a fire shower of penalties at any time"

Additionally, adding further tension, Yonhap reports that three top U.S. military commanders plan to issue a "strong warning message" to North Korea in a rare joint press availability here later Tuesday, officials said.

Pacific Command chief Adm. Harry Harris, Strategic Command head Gen. John Hyten and Missile Defense Agency Director Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves are scheduled to hold a press conference at a local U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) base.  It's quite unusual for the U.S. commanding generals serving abroad to gather in South Korea and release public statements together.


It apparently reflects Washington's alertness against North Korea's rapid development of nuclear bombs and missiles.

Given the fact that the US Navy has had two 'accidental collisions' with slow-moving vessels in recent months, what are the chances this all ends without incident?

USA needs to have someone take it and liberate the country from its masters.

Is "rare warning" worse than "stern warning?"

Tripple dog dare escallation, with extra foot stomping. But if that doesn't work they'll hold their breath till the other side is sorry! ( sides are interchangeable with no difference IMHO )

Kim talks a lot of shit, always has.  He knows full well he'd be a fool to push it at this point.

just to SHUT UP yet another week of "Shit Talk"

This article forgets 3 things.

- SK analysts think NK developed ERS to target air force base landing strips to prevent planes from taking to the sky (basically cluster warheads/MIRV) for it's missiles... ERS is for use in Scuds (300-1.3k km) & Rodongs (50-1k km) for now... working on ICBM MIRVs.

- North Korea's Kim Jong Un made a secret visit to a military unit just 1 km (0.6 mile) from the border with the South; reason unknown: Yonhap

- North Korea shipments to Syria chemical arms agency intercepted: U.N. report

We need to strike kim NOW

"We need to strike kim NOW"

Even if everything in your post is true, it is not a justification for war.  There is not a single country including North Korea that constitutes a viable threat to the United States.  Not a single country is amassing troops on our borders.  Not a single country could strike the US with a nuke without massive retaliation.  North Korea would lose a full-blown war in about 5 hours and there would be nothing left of it, while at most Kim may destroy one US city if he attacked us first (which is highly doubtful, even if you take CNN at its word about missile capabilities).  Kim may be an asshole, but he isn't suicidal.  If anything, it seems to be the United States that is suicidal, spreading its empire all over the globe while our infrastructure and economy collapse in order to benefit a few bankers and oligarchs.

You got it right excepted that boy is addicted to Playstation according to his school mates when he was in a private school in Switzerland, and he could be out of touch with the reality and truly believe he can win a nuclear war with the US.

Nice last sentence.  Succinct.

Nice Rand. Perfectly stated. It's amazing the number of people that say nuke NK. I always say When was the last time you saw a NK soldier on the border planning an invasion. That would be never. No threat. All mic

not dead yet's picture

That UN report was as credible as the Russians hacking the elections. Absolutely no details were given just more of the take our word for it stuff. Why should we strike NK other than satisfying US bloodlust. The bluster from NK has always been from the US using every excuse to screw them over, like blaming NK for that insider hack at Sony with Obama claiming hacking a movie studio was a danger to US security, and holding regular invasion drills off NK. The US needs a PO'd NK to justify military bases in Asia.

Just get this North Korea shit over already so we can have the global financial reset !!

karenm's picture

They're doing this on purpose. Objective is to wear out and discredit everyone who knows what's going on, like us. We tire of being ready and/or telling others. And some get very angry at these constant take crises. Anger is another objective, so we turn on one another when shit goes sideways.


Ignore these media psyops.


When the event occurs, we will receive no warning whatsoever. Be ready always.

Get 4 or 5 off Kimmy ( blame it on hackers ), maybe Guam, Japan, Singapore and one just across the border . . . then demand an immediate cessation of hostilities via UN Resolution. Don't wait for Uncle Scam to shine a torch up your ring-piece.

There would be nothing but a crater at that point, UN cant make a resolution concerining a radiated crater

The Norks have nothing. No way they'll pull the trigger, conventional or otherwise. This shit should not disrupt anyone sleeping soundly tonight or any night.

wonder how many of those stiff legged marching norks we see in military excercises are marching with their stomachs empty.

fat boy is 'tween rock and hard on.  our tariffs are starving his masses.

That could be the trigger! If a nation is starving it will fight.
Its like a wild boar, when its hungry it will take risks.
